Ruby Tuesday In The Fall




It's time for Ruby Tuesday with our host Mary of Work of the Poet. Mary suggested that if we had pictures of changing leaves to post them this week or next for Ruby Tuesday in the fall.
Just over a week ago I went to visit my Mom. She lives about forty-five minutes away and a little farther north. I took these first two images of the leaves on her maple tree. I loved the differences in the leaves on the same tree. The last one is of trees surrounding her now empty garden.
Be sure to click on the Ruby Miss Bug at the top to join in or see what kinds of red the other participants have posted for today.
Happy Ruby Tuesday to you all!

Wonderful fall leaves. I love all the colors of autumn. I like the contrast of the close-up leaf with the forest of colorful trees.

Christy said...

Lovely colors! I like the depth of field in the first picture!

Raven said...

Oh, so pretty. Great shots of autumn.

Jim said...

Carletta, I love those autumn colors. We don't get them until late November or in December.
Those old car lines aren't very aerodynamic but that wasn't so important back then. Thank you, happy Tuesday (Ruby)

Wow! I LOVE that first one! All are gorgeous, though.

These are beautiful photos, Carletta! In spite of all the flowers during spring and summer, fall is my favorite time of the year. Not only are we surrounded by color but the cooler temperatures make me very happy.

Those are very nice colours on the maple tree leaves, Carletta.

I love pictures of the leaves in the autumn. Wonderfull season for photos.

Robin said...

Lovely red leaves popping up everywhere today. I don't miss those northeastern winters but I do miss the fall colors that herald them.

Ivanhoe said...

I love the first one. It looks like the leaves are bleeding. Autumn is photographer's paradise, isn't it? :o)

Hi Carletta!
I love that top shot with the red veins starting through the leaf. Very cool. There was a good wind event in the northwest this past weekend so I can only imagine how many leaves are gracing my lawn up there right now :0)
Have great Tuesday...

Carletta: It's wonderful how the leaves are changing but I had to scrap my car windows this morning. I'm not looking forward to that task.

Grandma Faith said...

Autumn, so much beauty to be found in the end of summer... good pictures!

Craver Vii said...

We're coming into my favorite time of year. It is sooooo good to see the changing colors, and soon to walk through the crispy rustling leaves, as they lay scattered all about.

I especially like the top photo with the red veins.

I LOVE this time of year and it interests me that your mom's foliage season is just a tiny bit behind the season in my part of Ontario. I NEVER would have guessed that!

Shelly said...

So pretty, I'm hoping to find some brilliant reds this week on a little road trip.

I liked the 1st two shots the best.

Jientje said...

Great rubies Carletta, although I prefer Spring myself, I do love the ruby colours of Fall!

Gorgeous fall leaves!

Carletta,

Oh, Dang it!! Wish I could have taken a leaf-looking trip this fall!! :(

juliana said...

how lovely! and not completely unlike some of our coloured trees.
the first shot in particular is wonderful to me.

Ralph said...

I never noticed how the leaves turn color from the inside out at the ribs. I assume these are from the Mountaineer state, at a lower latitude, although the colors are just turning up here in Southern New England. Wild Wonderful West Virginia...and it truly is!

haleyhughes said...

Some gorgeous fall color you've captured. These pictures make me eager to go out searching for some fall color myself.

the teach said...

Carletta, these are beautiful photos to post for Ruby Tuesday! I love them! Happy RT!

Dianne said...

Oh I love that top shot!! the red veins are amazing

dot said...

I love your fall pictures! The leaves are such pretty colors. Soon we will have some of the same!

magiceye said...

Nice spots of that autumn red. I was supposed to get out this weekend looking to see if signs of autumn were around here anywhere. I forgot. :-0

Becky and Gary said...

I missed this post yesteray. Those leaves with the red veins are just beautiful! Fall is such a memorable time of year, but way too short. Thank goodness for cameras.

Red said...
